Romanticizing the few fleeting moments of seemingly loving attention given by a toxic partner is trauma bonding.
Living with the hopes of rekindling that toxic relationship is a trauma response.
When we finally do the work to release and reframe trauma, we know better and we do MUCH better.
Remember that we live what we learn. When we know better, we do better. And finally, we teach people how to treat us.”
Love and blessings,
